Ugh, I am hoping you all can help me. It seems that the more I dig into various models and features, the more unsure I become on what I want to purchase.
I want to break into 2k gaming and most likely wait on 4k. I will be picking up a GTX 1070 and running one on a Haswell-E 5820K system and one on a newly built 6700K system most likely. I really don't think I would like an Ultra-wide monitor. I am looking to pick up two total, one for my wife and one for me.
So, I am waffling between the following with my crude summary on what I have picked up the past few days:
Dell or Asus (maybe Benq or Acer if people have had decent enough luck with them)
60 Hz or 144+ Hz
Nvidia G-Sync or not
TN vs IPS
If I could snag a Dell TN 144Hz G-Sync one like Stusser has, the S2716DG it appears, for the price he did, it would probably be an easy choice. They appear to be over $550 now, though.
I would consider the price of an ASUS ROG monitor like Murbella was waiting on like the PG279Q for just under $800 to get the same features and IPS, but the price is making me cautious and some of the negative qualities of IPS have me concerned.
I could also go with an alternative with 60Hz, but I believe I have convinced myself I want to go 144Hz+ and G-Sync to experience it. Any recommendations I should consider or opinions on the above in today's market? Thanks!
